Recipe for "Caramelised Banana Bavarian"
The above recipe is in Gordon Ramsay's "Just Desserts" book. I can't manage to locate that one around here or find the recipe on line. Can someone paraphrase the recipe for me or send me the ellusive link that I can't find?
Caramelized banana bavarian:
50 ml cream
50 ml whole milk
1/4 vanilla pod
2 egg yolk
25g granulated sugar
1 gelatin sheet
1 medium ripe banana
25g granulated sugar (to coat the banana)
50 ml heavy cream, very cold
Bloom the gelatin sheet in cold water.
Heat the milk and cream to just under a boil with the vanilla pod (and it’s seed) in a small sauce pan, remove from heat. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks with the sugar until creamy and pale in color, carefully add 1/3 of the hot cream mixture to temper the egg mixture, pour it back to the pan with the remaining hot liquid, cook over low heat while stirring constantly until thickened, thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Add the soaked gelatin sheet, mix well and set aside to cool.
Make caramelized banana puree:
Quarter one ripe banana lengthwise, coat with sugar. Heat a dry heavy pan over medium-high heat, when you can feel heat rise from the bottom of the pan, place the sugar coated banana in, they should start to caramelize right away. Once one side is nicely caramelized, flip the banana over, and caramelize the other side. Off heat, puree the caramelized bananas and let it cool. Fold the two mixtures together.
